Fishing Tips Fishing is something that many people like to do for sport and/or for fun. It’s a great sport that can be very exciting and calming at the same time. It’s a great recreation activity for anyone who is looking for something to do. If you have never tried fishing before or always wanted to try it out then I strongly encourage you to take the time to do so. It is a great way to spend a hot and sunny afternoon. If you need some information and help on shore fishing and many other types of fishing, then read on as I will be explaining some of the basics of fishing. Types Of Fishing There are many different types of fishing that you can try out. The type of fishing that you can do will mostly depend on the location of where you are fishing and what time of the season it is. Usually during the spring and summer, boat fishing and shore fishing are used the most. This site focuses a lot on shore fishing tips but I also talk about many other styles of fishing as well. During the winter ice fishing is commonly used the most as boat fishing and shore fishing is not possible. Boat Fishing: Boat fishing is probably one of the most common types of fishing. It simply involves fishing from a boat. The major advantage about this is that you can easily transport yourself across a lake fairly quickly. If you find that one place isn’t working or the fish just aren’t simply biting, then you can just pack up and take five minutes to go down the lake and try a new spot out. This is the best thing about boat fishing. It’s fairly easy to get from on end of the lake to another with a boat. The downside is that owning a boat can be fairly expensive. Especially if you do not have the income to spare. You can always rent a boat but you will have to do this on a regular basis and that can add up over time. Shore Fishing: Shore fishing is the complete opposite of boat fishing. Fishing from the shore involves you fishing off of the mainland instead of in the middle of the lake on a boat. The best thing about shore fishing is that you don’t have to spend too much time packing and getting ready to go on your fishing trip. It’s also very much cheaper then boat fishing. You won’t have to pay to ether buy or rent a boat. Just like it’s positive reasons though it also has its negative, you will be limited on the areas you can fish in. If your feeling adventurous you can always explore to find some different areas but more then likely they will have other people fishing there. If you are fishing from shore you will have to accept that you won’t have many locations to choose from and that you will have to share your fishing area with other fishermen. Theres nothing wrong withe fishing with other families, just be sure that you look out for each other and your know basic fishing safety tips. Now that I have gone over the two main types of fishing, I will mention a few but won’t go into huge detail about them. If you want to learn more you can view the posts that I have written about them. So other then shore fishing and boat fishing, you can go ice fishing, fly fishing, bass fishing, trout and salmon fishing and so on. There are many different types of fish that you can go for. Just remember that some types of fishing are more complicated then others. If you are a beginner stick to the basics first and then go from there. Once you know the fundamentals you can then go about tackling some of the more advanced tactics of fishing. Fishing Tips Now I am going to go over some basic fishing tips. These can apply to almost any kind of fishing unless I specify otherwise. The location that you choose to fish in is very important. You may think that fish swim everywhere in a lake but this is far from the truth. If you happen to be fishing off the shoreline you should pay special attention to what I am saying here because you will be limited as to where you can fish. If you happen to be fishing for Bass, you can be sure to find them in very dark deep waters. This is because Bass fish love cool water. The other place to find Bass that is quite common is in shallow waters by the shore. Look for an area with rocks that stretch out and drop. Bass and other fish love to sit under these rocks and wait for bait to come swimming by. Another generic place that you can try fishing is a weed bed. All types of fish generally hang out here because this is a popular feeding place for fish. Theres all kinds of bugs and stuff like that for them to eat here. Walleye, Bass, Crappie, Perch and many more types of fish hang out in this area. The last place I’m going to talk about is river fishing. The fish that love to hang out in this area are Salmon and Trout. If you happen to be fishing for these two types of fish, try finding a river system on the map and fishing there. Lures: The last thing I am going to talk about briefly is lures and bait. The type of lures and bait will determine how well you will be able to catch fish. It’s a good thing to note though that not one lure works best for one particular type of fish. You will need to experiment and try many different type of lures to see what will work for you. Most fish can be caught using Jigs, and Powerbait. These are good things to start with and then go from there. If you are fishing from the shore and are catching Bass, then maybe try some Crankbait. It all really depends on what you are fishing for and what the fish are biting. Just be sure to try many different types of tackle before you come to a final conclusion. This is the end of this post so I hoped it helped you out with your fishing needs.
